The light is already on.



Lazy Guide - Image 2




An open heart
can become more spacious.

Where is the key
To a closed one?

Be like water,
it does not strain itself.

Be awake now!
It takes less time.

A flower does not talk,
We could do the same.

The golden orioles fly through the sky,
They leave no prints.

The reed’s shadows sweep the water,
There is no ripple.


Lazy Guide - Image 7






Stirring a thought
You totally miss it.



Lazy Guide - Image 8








There is no moment
Like this moment.


Lazy Guide - Image 9






A scowl or a smile?
Which is more effort?



Lazy Guide - Image 10





Blessed are those

Who do not exert themselves.


Lazy Guide - Image 11







Peak experience?
What goes up
Goes down!



Lazy Guide - Image 12




Rejoice at the happiness of others,

It is an easy way to be happy.


Lazy Guide - Image 13






Time is timeless.
No need to rush.



Lazy Guide - Image 14





Be enlightened by all things,

Just look, just listen.


Lazy Guide - Image 15







Keep your life simple.
It is less trouble.



Lazy Guide - Image 16






The Great Way is not difficult,

For those who do not pick and choose.


Lazy Guide - Image 17








Searching for the truth,
It has never gone away.



Lazy Guide - Image 18






Time is running out.

Don’t run after it.


Lazy Guide - Image 19






Share your happiness,
It is a free gift.



Lazy Guide - Image 20



To all those who prefer to walk
When told to run.

To all those who prefer to lie down
When told to stand up.


Lazy Guide - Image 21





A bee gathers pollen,
The delicate blossom
Is left untouched.



Lazy Guide - Image 22






Whos is there to be confused?


Lazy Guide - Image 23







Enlightenment is out there!



Lazy Guide - Image 24



Grasping is futile, rejecting is painful;
Care lightly and gently,

Like a mother holding a child,
Not too loose, not too tight.
